Commentator of the day
Old monkey features Martin Keown was at his oddball best alongside Jonathan Pearce for the BBC last night. First, he failed to recognise Eusebio, possibly the greatest European footballer ever. Then, he proceeded to liken Ronaldo's aerial ability to that of "an NFL basketball star." Even by his own sloppy standards of analysis, that is deserving of a giant WOW!
Anonymous striker of the day
Milan Baros (allegedly) started for the Czechs last night, before announcing his international retirement after his country's exit. Rumours he'd in fact hung his boots up before the kick off are as yet unconfirmed. But what's for sure is that judging by his performance, he may as well have done.
Player of the day
Cristiano Ronaldo has grown into this tournament, scoring two in the final group game to take Portugal through to last night, and then popping up with a diving header to settle matters. He's now down to odds of 3.00 to win the golden boot, and so impressive was he last night, that many are suggesting Portugal have become a one-man team...

Lookalike of the day
The Czech Republic missed Tomas Rosicky last night. But fortunately the TV cameras didn't, and thus panned to him in the dug-out at every opportunity. Which, by the way, reminded us how much he looks like Canadian songstress KD Lang.
